Re: Supporting cast stands out, June 12 theatre review.
What a disappointing review by Alex Browne of Barefoot in the Park.
And he’s wrong, wrong, wrong about it, too! Friends and I went to see it and we agreed it was one of the most hilarious plays we’ve seen in a long, long time. We laughed till we cried and every single actor/actress in it was magnificent.
What the heck is he talking about ‘miscasting’, ‘no chemistry’ and ‘unflattering wardrobes’?
The casting was excellent and so was everything else! We could hardly believe we were in White Rock.
Rebecca Strom was lovely, Ryan Mooney was quirky and an excellent counterpart and Cindy Peterson was a complete joy to behold. And so were the other players. It never stopped being hilarious, and we could not stop giggling throughout the play.
I think Mr. Browne should clean his glasses or try to retrieve his sense of humour and advise everybody to watch this unbelievably funny play, instead of acting like some fuddy-duddy who chose to criticize what just was not important.
We should all be proud to have this in the White Rock theatre. Our night was one to remember.
Go see it and laugh away.
